Eric Omondi named rhino ambassador at L. Nakuru park

28 September 2014, 18:09 Magdalene Mwaniki

Nakuru - Comedian Eric Omondi was announced the Ambassador of the rare rhino species during the 10th edition of Cycle with the Rhino held at Lake Nakuru National park Saturday.

The top comedian will be spearheading campaigns for protection of the rare species which are a major tourists attraction at the park.

Speaking during the event, the comedian expressed interest towards conservation of the rhinos and at the same time create a better ecosystem for the animals.

Over the past few years, Lake Nakuru's rising water levels have shrunken grazing land for rhinos forcing them to move to park periphery hence making them an easy target for poachers.

Currently, the park holds a population of over 70 black and white rhinos.

Kenya Wildlife Service Director, William Kiprono said that the event was aimed at completing the remaining 51 km of the perimeter fence.

“Funds from the various events have been used to carry out community activities such as planting trees around the park, donating furniture to schools and water tanks to the communities,” he added.

The fence will also help in conservation of the park which has been a rhino sanctuary since 1987.
